audition notice - WONDERLAND WIVES - Nearly Naked Theatre - February 29
by Buddy Thomas
directed by Damon Dering
This is what happens when you have a fairy-tale marriage... and no pre-nup. The desperate housewives of Wonderland learn that princes can go to prison, shack up with a few little pigs, and drive even the fairest of them all to drink! Off-Broadway playwright Buddy Thomas (The Crumple Zone, Devil Boys From Beyond) honors Nearly Naked with the WORLD PREMIERE of his latest genderbent comedy... a fractured fairy tale that brings an arched eyebrow and an eye for dark, sexy hilarity to the “Ever After” that keeps going long after the happily fades away. ~intended for mature audiences with very immature tastes!~
6 actors aged 25-50+
Wonderland Wives is cast “genderblind,” with several roles able to be played by both men and women, as long as they’re “fabulous”! Please remember that all the princesses are "past their prime" as far as cartoons are concerned, and need to be approaching 30 a little too quickly.
SNOW (25-35): Her time with the dwarves is long gone, but she still thinks she's fairest in the land... with the help of a very tight girdle.
BELLE (25-35): Turns out if your husband was once a "Beast" then your children might be as well. Makes a princess want to drink... a lot.
CINDY (25-35): Glass slippers are only for the dainty... and Cindy is past her dainty period. Now she's about to inhale the buffet table, and you'd better get out of her way.
ROSE (25-35): Someone just got back from rehab... and she looks fabulous! Maybe it was a Swiss plastic surgery center.
BRUCE (BEAST)/CHARMING (25-35): Plays both princes, one is hot, but right out of prison... the other... isn't hot. Beer has consequences.
FAIRY GODMOTHER/ALICE/MAGIC-MIRROR/EVIL QUEEN (45+): Alice (a la Bette Davis as Baby Jane) is just one of the crazy more "mature" characters played by this actor.
